    I applied online. The process took a dayinterviewed at UPS in October 2014.

    Interview Details

    It was a group interview (15 people) led first by the HR director and then the Union rep introduced himself and the EXACT DETAILS of the position. He was VERY direct. He basically told everybody what the job requirements were and if you agreed to it you MUST work for a full year without 1 missed day. If you decide to quit within that first year, he stated very openly to everbody the UPS policy, which is "You quit in the first year, you can NEVER EVER APPLY WITH UPS IN YOUR LIFETIME. Interesting to say the least....

    I applied online – interviewed at UPS in October 2014.

    Interview Details

    The hiring was different. The first round was a tour of the facility and a very brief overview of the company including a few slides about benefits. Honestly, the presentation was lousy. There were 15 of us grouped together to look over the plant with an HR rep. that could barely be heard above the hum of the moving belts. Additionally, the rep. rapped up the plant tour by saying, "I can schedule an appointment for a second interview if any of you are still interested in working at UPS". It felt as if this person was apologizing. When did you make a real effort to win me over? After several questions at the end I felt like I had a decent idea of what was expected.

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at UPS in October 2014.

    Interview Details

    Found job opening on job site. Went to UPS site to complete application. At the end it said next appt/tour was later that morning. I booked it and went to the local job center where it was being held. About 15 people met in a conference room where the recruiter talked about the company and the jobs available. Then we met with her one on one for a brief interview. Just basic easy questions. She entered information into her computer as we spoke. Told her I had a felony and she acted as though it were no big deal. She said she would email once the background check came back in 5 to 7 days, although in my case it could be a little longer due to my background.

    It has been three weeks and I have yet to hear from them. I hear having to wait two to three weeks is common, however.

    Submit your resume online, then you will be asked to reserve an appointment online. Be there on time. First, HR will give a speech, then you will tour the whole faculty. Thus, the interview begins. Normal behavioral questions, nothing hard.

    I applied online. The process took 4 daysinterviewed at UPS in September 2014.

    Interview Details

    It's a group tour. They take you around the warehouse and show you the hell hole you'll be working in. After the tour they take you in for a 1 on 1 interview which is very quick and easy. The interview and hiring process went very well and the job seemed promising. Once the orientation started I knew this wasn't for me. There was basically no training; They just throw you into the fire. This is basically like working in a sweat shop. Low pay for extremely hard work. I would highly recommend not wasting your time.

    Negotiation Details
    They told me I would be making $10 an hour. Seemed okay, but once you start the work you realize you should be making twice that amount.

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at UPS in September 2014.

    Interview Details

    I applied on line and was immediately offered a time and date for the initial group meeting/individual interview. At the group meeting, the HR person was very easy to talk to and appeared to be very straight forward about what to expect when employed by UPS in this position. She answered all of our questions. During the informational portion, the HR person stated that with this position, they are looking for people with a construction or landscaping background (i.e. some type of physically demanding job experience). During the individual interviews, I was asked about my background experience and whether or not I had reliable transportation. At the conclusion of the interview, I was asked to provide my birth date and social security # for a background check to be conducted. The entire process took a little more than 2 weeks to compete. In total it will take me 3 weeks, from start to finish to get to work.

    No negotiation for pay. You choose what shift works best for your schedule.
